I created this ground turkey stir-fry recipe when I began my journey to get fit. Eating well always sounded bland and boring, so I wanted to bring life to the world of healthy eating. I think I did it with this spicy dish. —Jermell Clark, Desert Hot Springs, California

  • 2 ounces thick rice noodles
  • 1/2 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh kale
  • 1/4 cup packed fresh parsley sprigs, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon coconut or olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons Sriracha chili sauce
  • Thai peanut sauce, optional


  1. Cook noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook turkey, onion, cabbage and kale over medium-high heat until turkey is no longer pink and vegetables are tender, 8-10 minutes, breaking turkey into crumbles.
  2. Drain noodles; add to skillet. Stir in parsley, coconut oil, pepper and salt. Serve with green onions, jalapeno, chili sauce and, if desired, peanut sauce.
Peppers (Hot)
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
